Physics vey goes He wasn't an actor, but he was known for dressing up like Galileo. He wasn't an astronaut, but he used to build rockets with students and fire them off from the parking lot. He wasn't a pioneer, but he sometimes led small caravans to Callahan County and spent the night observing stars. He wasn't a former assistant coach to the Dallas Cowboys, but he organized touch football games between his astronomy class and anyone who would play them. He was Dr. Charles Ivey, chair- man of the physics department for IO years. Ivey resigned his post to further his career in research and development ap- plications in industry by taking a vice presidential position with La.Iet Geophysical, an Abilene based oil firm. Ivey said leaving teaching was one of the hardest decisions he had ever made but L.V: - L..k: iiiiii e . - .X - f,3f,,s..s, -sl' ses to ork in indu tr that it was time for him to move on and let the physics department try some new ideas. When Ivey came to ACU I2 years ago, his goal was to establish a physics program and department. He did so with the help of Dr. Edward Brown, Dean Emeritus Walter H. Adams, and Dr. B. J. Humble. Besides being head of the department, Ivey taught a non-majors astronomy class. Almost every semester he would come to one of his astronomy classes dressed as Galileo and tell of the Ita1ian's life as though it were his own. Before leaving ACU in December, Ivey already had begun plans to enlarge the physics department to include a degree in engineering geology. Dr. Paul Schulze, who had served in the physics department for ll years, took Ivey's place as chairman. Schulze said he planned no dramatic changes in thi department, but would continue thi development of a geology degree. An increased demand for geologist came from the private business sector ii this area, primarily the oil business. Mucl of the funding to set up the new degree hat come from that same sector, Schulze said. Schulze said that if a freshman came t- ACU in the fall of 1982 he could graduat with a geology degree in four years. The physics department expanded it research efforts as well as its degre offerings. Dr. Mike Sadler, assistant professor o physics, Mark Tate and Mike Ballard seniors, and Steve Shaffer, junior, dit analysis work at Los Alamos Nationa Laboratory. Sadler said their work wa believed to be the most accurate data to b found on pion-nucleon reactions. sf ff X 1 5-' 172 Physics ""'hs.,
